I’m writing a profile of Berklee study-abroad student Josh Story, who toted his tuba all across Freiburg to play with a variety of groups. I got to see a particularly impressive one: the Hochschule für Musik orchestra. If you peer in, you’ll see that dash of gold in the back of the brass section.
(Those with a childhood doused in musical theater may hear “76 Trombones” on their mental jukebox: “And I modestly took my place as the one and only bass. . . .”)
